Get Localization Sync for Eclipse syncs your translation files between Eclipse and the Get Localization project. It is very easy to use and it allows developers to use their time on actual development work instead of arranging and managing localization files.
Select Help -> Eclipse Marketplace and search "Get Localization"
1. Choose Help -> Install new software...
2. Click "Add..." button
3. Enter name for repository e.g. Get Localization
4. Enter repository location, which is http://getlocalization.sync.s3.amazonaws.com
5. Click Ok
6. Click "Uncategorized" and check Get_Localization_Sync -plugin
7. Click "Next" and follow instructions
Settings are project specific so they can be easily found in your project properties.
In properties, you can find the Get Localization Sync plug-in.
Username - Your Get Localization username
Password - Your Get Localization password
Project - Your Get Localization project name (same that appears in project URL)
Default Platform - The platform you are developing on. It defines the file format of your i18n files. You can also set the format for individual files from their properties if you happen to have multiple different file formats in your project.
Right-click the file you wish to send to Get Localization and select "Get Localization Sync -> Send to translation". Note that these always should be master files (files that translators translate from, typically in English), never send files that are in a different language than your other master files.
After translation, you can easily sync the files back to any folder you wish.
Get Localization Sync for Eclipse has a specific way of handling Android projects when translations are synced back to "res" folder. They are automatically placed into appropriate values folders so they work in your application without modification.
The pull file filter allows you to filter which files you wish to pull to your Eclipse project. For example just pull all the strings.xml's you can use filter:
Replace rules can be used to alter filenames when they're pulled to Eclipse project. You can for example create rules that change the language codes or installation path. E.g. if you wish to change the language code from pt-BR to pt-rBR, just create the following replace rule:
pt-BR/ -> pt-rBR/
Replace rules can be imported and exported so if you do proper rules for example for Android or some other platform, please do share them with us. We'd be happy to add them to our library.
